About Me


To be perpetually happy ( who does not want to be?), to find something that truly drives me


An Indian at heart. Spent 22 years of my life in India before flying out to France for my higher studies.
I am a little picky about the people I hang out with. I love discussing history or listening to history. Music makes me happy and I have a feeling I am blabbering general stuff here but even I am in the process of exploring myself.


Too many!
But all of them say mostly
You just cant worry or save enough
whatever has to happen will happen
You live life just once

I just made that up in case you are wondering if those are some famous sayings-they are not

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I cannot host as my current apartment is a little tiny and without a living room.
However, I am always open to showing people around Lyon:) A cup of coffee or partying out and great conversations.
Recommending CS to all my friends and getting more people to know the magic of CS.


CS changed my life when I was interning in a small little unheard of place in France called Annemasse.
I met new people and did new things.
I made friends for life and created memories forever.
I owe a lot to CS and Annemasse for giving me a whole new outlook towards life.


Sports, music, new dishes (and by new I mean something which is healthy and simple to cook). Being a student and most importantly a lazy student, I dont feel very motivated to spend a lot of time cooking for myself. However, that does not make me resort to unhealthy junk food, so I would be really glad to know some interesting dishes for daily survival.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - Bollywood movies - loads of faves. I feel I can draw parallels from them in my personal life. I love Jab We met, Wake up Sid, Rang De basanti. Every day something funny happens and I tel myself "Ah, this reminds me of this scene from this movie."

I'd highly recommend them to you.
P.S I love movies with high doses of emotions.
Books _ Pride and Prejudice, all agatha christie thrillers, Shakespeare.

I told you I love emotions and drama ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paragliding. Running towards the lake of annecy from the top of the mountain;
T he beautiful flowers on my way to office and back. They just make me so happy
